Linux n00b needs teh helpzors!!!
Ok guys! So I recently got this idea in my head that I want to play around with Linux....I have an old computer (P4) that I want to turn into a file server (an ftp server?). Maybe even play around with it being a webserver (like for a webpage or something).
The problem is I've never touched linux. And there are so many varieties of it out there....I don't know where to start. If you could point me in the right direction I would be grateful!
I know several of you are very experienced in this area and would like some pointers. And please keep it simple if possible, I don't want to be overwhelmed. Haha.
